As part of the InMotion Festival at the Bunker Theatre last year I performed with a wonderful band (MD Nick Pike on keys and sax, Dan Smith on percussion and Alex Karski on bass). We accompanied and performed with fantastic dance company Old Kent Road
Here’s what the show said about itself:
Summer 2017 Theatre Bench presents
as part of the InMotion Festival
What happens when you combine four of the most talented dancers in the U.K. with a heavy duty pop funk combo in the heat of a London summer’s night? We’re about to find out, as Dirty.Tap.Funk. takes over the late night slot at the Bunker for a three week residency. With sassy moves and sultry sounds, Dirty.Tap.Funk will have you on your feet dancing to the beat! With a Dirty Martini from our bar, it’s the perfect way to finish your night out.
We are proud to be collaborating with Theatre Bench to present the InMotion Festival this August. From tap to physical theatre, funk music to jazz bands, the Festival will have something for everyone and will get you up and moving this summer.
And here’s the review feedback:
The lights dimmed at Bunker Theatre as the band (a sub-set of LATIMO, led by MD Nick Pike with vocalist Anne-Marie Piazza) entered the stage and the party atmosphere began. Launching straight into the well-known Funk Soundtrack which framed the performance, the audience instantly felt they had stepped back in time to a martini filled funk/tap club.
As a dancer, this performance was incredibly fun to watch and I can’t wait to see what else Old Kent Road brings to the stage! A must group, they will be on tour in early 2018 with their new production ‘Fall Out’, I’ll see you all there!
